Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 235

post #2341 of 3508
I got my Achieva (QH-270 Lite) yesterday. I have been following this thread for awhile. I ordered a perfect pixel model from Red-cap. I ordered it on Friday and it shipped Sunday night and was to me in Wisconsin on Tuesday. I was blow away at the speed this thing shipped.

The monitor fired up with 0 issues, it did have some light bleeding but it was not bad. It calibrated very nicely and is very beautiful! Mine is a little crooked and there was the normal wobble everyone has talked about. But I am already planning on getting a 2nd one.

My two from TA_PLANET are also working well. My first one has a very slight "cloudiness" in one part of the screen when a solid color is shown, but is not really that noticeable unless I am looking for it.
My 2nd one is great also (neither have bad pixels or anything).

Prices seem to be on the rise compared to a month ago.

Hi!!

Do you guys know where can I find some video demos with a resolution of 2560x1440 to see what our new achievas can perform?

I haven't found any yet!!

And some REALLY good quality pictures?

And, by the way, can someone tell me how to set a color profile in windows 7? I tried yesterday but I did not get to do it mad.gif However I am happy with its colors just like they were when I got it out of the box, just too bright.

Cheers!!

and for the new guys, just a reminder...

out of the box these things have the brightness cranked to the max. there are several buttons on the back of the monitor that do nothing, however, the top two actually work and control the brightness. i spent several days trying to calibrate mine using settings in the Nvidia control panel before realizing the brightness could be adjust on the monitor. i lowered it to about half way and all my back light bleeding went away.

My only real complaint about this monitor is that the brightness cant be tuned a little finer through the buttons on the back. I am sure I can make some fine adjustments through my Nvidia card but when I calibrated mine with my Spyder 3 Elite, the difference between one click down with the brightness was huge!

What do you use to cycle?

I'm still rather upset about their claims of actually testing the monitors though, because even though the first monitor is understandably flawed, the second one (shown in the video) is pretty unacceptable. There is no problem with my cabling or my video card set up either, as I have run other shimians from this card without a hitch.

What carrier did you use to return, and how much did it cost if you don't mind me asking?
